Jose Mourinho will sign two new players at Manchester United in January if Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin depart, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Both are likely to be defenders, with Benfica star Victor Lindelof a key target.
Southampton captain Jose Fonte is another possibility as Mourinho looks for cover for Eric Bailly, who is currently injured but is expected to travel to the Africa Cup of Nations next month.
United showed interest in Fonte during the summer window and the Portugal international shares the same agent as Mourinho in Jorge Mendes.
Mourinho is understood to have discussed his transfer plans when Mendes recently visited him at The Lowry Hotel.
Ashley Young is also interesting Everton, as well as former club Watford, West Brom and Swansea. It is understood Mourinho has informed Young he wants to keep him beyond the winter window.
Mourinho is also believed to be keen on retaining Matteo Darmian following his recent resurgence. The Italian has started the last six Premier League games and had the privilege of being one of the rested first-teamers for last week’s tie against Zorya.
The Italian had appeared just twice before Antonio Valencia fractured his arm in late October and was heavily linked with Internazionale before Frank de Boer was sacked.
